And let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.

Hebrews 10:24–25, LSB

Human nature, especially within Western culture, is to be independent and seek to do things by ourselves. This is not something that we can accomplish in faith. We are called to something greater and called to be different. We are not to forsake coming together and worship. We are to be with other believers in worship in the same space, hearing the Word, singing the songs, and praying for one another. A common thing said when I was in seminary is, “There are no ‘lone ranger’ Christians.” We are meant to stand in unity with others in the faith. We hold each other to account and offer support in times of struggle. It is a beautiful renewal of the hearts of believers as we come together and lift one another in our sorrows. The prayers of believers coming together for the renewal of souls. A day of suffering is ever before us, but no work of the evil one can prevail against the Church and her people standing firm in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ. In this, we find our peace.

Let us pray. I thank you, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, your dear Son, that you have kept me this night from all harm and danger, and I ask you to protect me this day also from sin and every evil, that in all I do today, I may please you. For into your hands, I commend myself, my body and soul, and all that is mine. Let your holy angel watch over me, that the wicked foe have no power over me. Amen.
